Deep within the wondrous landscapes of the luscious Bornean rainforests lies the key to impeccable luminous skin. And the guardians of this illustrious key are none other than the Kadazan-Dusun people.
Famed for their flawless complexions, the Kadazan-Dusun people have perfected the formula to glowing radiant skin by embracing the powers of rich exotic Bornean botany. For centuries, this untold secret has been a hidden untouched gem – until now.
OLUMES is a multitasking and award-winning skincare brand, founded by Ms Aerin Gabor and Ms Ika Yahiya in late 2019. It all began when Ms Gabor discovered that her Kadazan-Dusun relatives living in the foothills of Mount Kinabalu have flawless skin without a complicated skincare regime.
It turns out that the secret to their flawless skin lies within a Kalalit tree, native to South East Asian region, this heartwood is bursting with a naturally occurring compound called brazilin, and it is where the Kalalit tree derives all its remedial abilities. Intrigued by the skincare benefits of Kalalit tree, they set off with a mission to extract the goodness of Kalalit tree and founded OLUMES to share it with the world.
OLUMES is a Malaysian beauty brand making products with a natural extract, Kalalit water, which is sourced from Mount Kinabalu.
